Help break the cycle of poverty for our most vulnerable families by fighting for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.

Every Fall, United Way of Greater Union County partners with local businesses, organizations and connect with individuals to raise funds in order to help strengthen our community. Our annual individual and workplace campaigns provide the support United Way and our member non-profit agencies need as we work toward improving the lives of children and families in the areas of Family Strengthening, Education, Financial Independence and Health. By focusing on these four areas, together, we create sustainable solutions that positively affect our community.

Our annual campaign plays a critical role in our organization’s work.  Each year, United Way of Greater Union County serves more than 200,000 people in Union County, North and South Plainfield by providing critical services such as food, shelter, healthcare, education and more.  Our funding also includes four Family Success Centers operating out of Union County, which provides vital wrap-around resources and support to families before they find themselves in crises.
